    Video distortions after installing ububtu 12.10

    Brand new linux user and I am very excited to get started. I did notice while and after installing that my laptop screen would distort for awhile and come back. Will this be solved with updates and drivers that i need to install or do I hav a bigger issue. I appreciate any help I can get on the matter.

    Hello and Welcome

    If it is a new installation run the software updater and restart if prompted. When you log back in open Software Sources > Additional Drivers and check for proprietary drivers for your video card /chip. You do not have to install them but they do improve performance on my system.

    Seems to be working okay. When I restart though a nvidia logo pops up and quickly goes away, resolution seems to bad at that time too. This all happens before I login.
